Mark Miller, in his great PBS article “The Brain Fitness Program” , provides anyone in their late 30’s and older a great wake up call regarding memory and our functioning brain:

” What we now know about brain function is that we begin to experience decline in most cognitive functions in our 30s and 40s. As we grow older, the rate of decline increases, and the cumulative effects become more noticeable. We have increasing difficulty remembering, paying close attention, responding rapidly, performing complex tasks and our coordination and movement and many other cognitive functions that once came easily are now more difficult”

Realtors and other professionals are constantly attempting to present a younger image, you know that headshot that is 10-15 yrs old, to the public. These attempts focus exclusively on the physical appearance; how refreshing would it be if you could remember every client name, come up with answers faster, and be perceived as “young minded” to your clients?

The great news about the brain according to University of California at San Francisco professor of Otolaryngology and neuroscientist Dr. Michael Merzenich is as follows:

1. Your brain is plastic. . . your brain can change itself physically and functionally at any age

2. With the right stimuli, neural connections can be rewired and refined, the brain’s gray matter can thicken, and new neurons can be produced. . . this natural adaptive ability (brain plasticity or neuroplasticity). . . can have dramatic – and sometimes life-changing – effects.

3. Intensive, repetitive, and progressively challenging brain training is the answer to the problems outlined above in Mark Miller’s PBS article.

In order to implement the exact brain training for the desired results, investigate Dr. Merzenich’s website www.positscience.com. Within the site is a great demo video which explains how the training is run, what is involved, and the type of exercises you will be implementing. In addition you can investigate Dr. Merzenich’s blog “On the Brain.”
The following youtube videos are very important to understanding the incredible benefits of Dr. Merzenich’s program. If you have a relative who is looking for answers or if you wish to help prevent the ravages of aging on the brain please watch these videos and investigate Dr. Merzenich’s website.
